Snapshots: Zoo Primates

I particularly like this picture of the cousins together at the zoo a few weeks ago. Not so much because it’s Art as because what a bunch of cuties. :)

American. The people who taught them English have American accents, after all. But the older one, who is more self-conscious about not sounding like other kids his age, uses an Irish accent quite a lot of the time, and they will both no doubt be able to switch back and forth at will all their lives.

I used to think this was a cut-and-dry thing, but then I met a bunch of people whose parents immigrated to America who have no ability to use their parents' accent. There are a lot of cultural and individual influences that go into the choice, apparently, so I was just curious. Love me some linguistic anthropology!
